Does this hangover cure work?



Scientists have developed a genetically modified bacteria which, reportedly, can help alleviate the nasty symptoms of a hangover. CNET Science Editor Jackson Ryan put the genetically modified drink to the test, but his experiments didn’t work out exactly as he’d planned.

    Not correct science. Need to do it double blind. How about ask a Mythbuster who lives and works in San Fransisco next time.

    If you want to prevent a hangover, you need a couple of things. First – you need electrolytes. Forget Gatorade or Powerade, that's all pissing money away, get Lyteshow or a similar brand that has ALL ELECTROLYTES, not just a pinch of sodium and potassium.

    You also need B vitamins, and a lot of them. Alcohol steals B vitamins from you at a very fast rate.

    You also might consider taking NAC (aids in liver function), prickly pear and magnesium glycinate. These will probably not work as well for a general population, evidence for their benefits is more limited, but it might help. Many hangover supplements don't make you FEEL better, but most will still have SOME benefit to your health.

    These probiotics may help breakdown alcohol's metabolites but they don't actually replace fluids, vitamins, electrolytes etc that you lose from drinking.

    This has been a PSA, you're welcome.
